Dear Arkansas brides and vendors

I know many of you are filled with worry and fear regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on your wedding plans and businesses. 

Whether you’re hosting or servicing a wedding here in Arkansas or for a destination wedding, there are countless moving parts surrounding COVID-19 that you now have to navigate (get daily updates here).

As you face difficult decisions and so much uncertainty, we want to be a source of support and information for you all.

Our team will continue to follow the news, stay well-versed in the travel guidelines and social restrictions, and talk with experts across the Arkansas wedding industry—so stay glued to our social media and sign-up for our e-newsletter!

In the coming days and weeks, we will give you a closer look at how each aspect of your wedding may be affected, answer your questions and work hand-in-hand with our valued vendor partners to bring you key expertise to get you through this. And, we are going to have some FUN, new things for y’all too to brighten your moods—stay tuned!

I want to add one important thing: Please remember to support our local vendors during this time. Reschedule, don't cancel. Give as much notice as possible for changes or cancelations so vendors don't waste money on products or services, and have a lot of time to replace that income. Please remember that the many weddings in limbo right now are not going away, they will happen (even if postponed). People are still going to get engaged and start planning new weddings. Plans might be slowed and inconvenienced, but Arkansas weddings must go on and certainly will. So, let's work together to take care of each other—in health and in business.

At Arkansas Bride, we've always been here to help you during every step of your wedding journey, and this current situation is no exception.

Watch for answers to your FAQs daily on our Insta stories, and we encourage you to reach out to us at with any questions or concerns. 

Stay safe, y'all.
With love,
—and the whole Arkansas Bride team
